Luke 17:5-6 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. KJV
What is Jesus talking about here? “It should obey you.” Your faith. Faith has to obey you and go to work on whatever you use it on. Your circumstances have to obey faith when you put faith to work and faith has to obey you and go to work on whatever you use your faith for.
Luke 17:7-8 But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? 8 And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? KJV
Jesus in this scripture is talking about faith obeying you like a servant. Faith is your servant.
Faith wants to obey you for that is what faith is for. Don’t take away the dignity of your faith by not allowing it to work for you. Faith is your servant for you to put to work every single day to heal your body, get your bills paid, get you out of debt, heal your marriage, etc. You put faith to work for you by believing, speaking and putting action to your faith.
Faith is the greatest principle you can learn because you are going to carry on your life with faith and use it against your enemy. Your enemy knows you got born again and now he is going to try and stop you from using your faith and making it grow for that would be to his detriment. So he tries to drain your faith, make you doubt and give up on your faith.
Faith is designed to do the impossible for you. Faith is your servant to do the impossible for you.
